  • Transfers Outside the UK

We may need to transfer your information outside the UK to service providers, agents, subcontractors and regulatory authorities in countries where data protection laws may not provide the same level of protection as those in the European Economic Area (EEA), such as the USA.

We may need to transfer your personal information to territories that are outside the EEA. We will only transfer your personal information outside the EEA where either:

  • the transfer is to a country which the EU Commission has decided ensures an adequate level of protection for your personal information, or
  • we have put in place our own measures to ensure adequate security as required by data protection law. These measures include ensuring that your personal information is kept safe by carrying out strict security checks on our overseas partners and suppliers, backed by strong contractual undertakings approved by the relevant regulators such as the EU style model clauses. Some US providers may also be certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield which confirms they have appropriate measures in place to ensure the protection of your data.
  • How long we keep your personal information for

We will never retain your personal information for any longer than is necessary for the purposes we need to use it for. Please click here for further information on how long we hold your personal data for.

  • Where you have made a complaint or enquiry, we may hold our information for up to two years after your complaint or enquiry has been resolved.
  • Notwithstanding the terms of paragraph 10(c) above, we may hold your personal information for longer where it is necessary to do so for the management of any active or potential legal proceedings, to resolve or defend claims, and for the purpose of making any necessary remediation payments.
  • We ordinarily retain CCTV footage for a period of 30 days before it is securely destroyed. Where we have saved particular footage related to an incident, legitimate request or claim we retain that footage for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it has been retained.
